What make a nature photograph stands out?

Graeme Guy, an outstanding nature photographer and the founder of Nature Photographic Society of Singapore, mentioned that there are 4 elements that make a nature photograph stands out:

(1) Action – This may include a flight shot or a running cat in hot pursuit.

(2) Behaviour – The old adage of every picture tells a story is never truer than when unique behavior of a species is catpured in an instant of time on an image.

(3) Colourful – Nothing pleases the retina more than some highly saturated colours in pleasant harmony within an image.

(4) Cute – Nothing stirs the emotions more than animal babies. Fluffy duckling bobbing along on waters reflecting the mood of spring evokes pleasant thoughts.

To be a better nature photographer, I shall work more on these areas.
